Squatters Hop Rising Tropical DIPA
What the brewers say
"Our much-loved double IPA tests the tropical waters with notes of mango and citrus derived entirely from exotic hops."
What our panel thought
"Pleasant nose: candied citrus peel, lemon pith, floral notes. Tropical candied-fruit flavor, orange-juicy, a bit tangy, on a sweet caramel bed; gentle bitterness takes a back seat. Leans sweet in the finish, zest lingering. Finds some balance in citrus tang and soft cocktail warmth. Delicious. Perilous."
What our editors thought
"Familiar if unremarkable corn-like sweetness on the nose; light tropical notes. Gives way to a body that takes tropical flavor (guava, passion fruit) to 11."
